Kemah Crawfish Festival

The three-day Kemah Crawfish Festival brings together crawfish races, eating contests, and magic, with zydeco, rock and country music. The crawfish races, we're told by organizers, will be held according to International Racing Rules (which we're guessing are pretty lax). The magic comes in with Marie Laveau's Voodoo Garden, presented by Kemah Ghost Tours. And various local bands will provide the music. Of course, the big draw is the crawfish, which will be served up by the pound (just $2 per). Noon to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, noon to 6 p.m. Sunday. Under the Kemah Bridge, 311 Texas, Kemah. For information, call 281-802-2776 or visit www.kemahcrawfishfestival.com. Free to $12.
